Farah Palmer

Farah Palmer played for the Black Ferns from 1996 until 2006, including three Women’s Rugby World Cup wins. She was Captain of the side from 1997-2006, leading the Black Ferns in 30 Tests, which remains the record for appearances as Captain. She is now fifth on the all-time appearances list, behind Anna Richards, Emma Jensen, Fiao’o Fa’amausili and Casey Robertson.

At provincial level she played for Otago from 1992-96 and 1998-2000, Waikato in 1997 and Manawatu from 2001 until her retirement from the game in 2006. She is recognised as an icon in women's rugby and was inducted into the World Rugby hall of fame in 2014.

In 2016, the Women's Provincial Championship was renamed the Farah Palmer Cup in her honour.
